“Blood Realm” Creator Robert Geronimo Unleashes “WIREHEAD” on an Unsuspecting World
On Tuesday, independent comic book creator Robert Geronimo launched a crowdfunding campaign for WIREHEAD, an all-new, 80-page horror graphic novel. Written by Geronimo (Blood Realm) and featuring illustrations by Michael O’Shea (It Came Out on a Wednesday) and letters by Wes Locher (Red Koi), WIREHEAD is inspired by the slasher tales of the 1980s, such as Halloween and Friday the 13th.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Wirehead Indiegogo campaign page.
WIREHEAD is a black and white, 80 page graphic novel that will satiate any horror fan of the slasher genre. Fans of retro sci-fi will certainly enjoy this nightmarish tale, reminiscent of THE TERMINATOR and THE THING.
WIREHEAD oozes an 80s/90s aesthetic with its setting and plot twists, featuring spectacular gore and moody tension. The series also highlights the classic 80s obsession with slasher villains and big corporate conspiracies.
Backers can get a copy of WIREHEAD for $20. If you have more cash to throw around, you can also receive a trending card, sticker, art prints, a t-shirt, original artwork, or copies of Geronimo’s Blood Realm book (which I highly recommend for horror and fantasy fans).
